Skin Wars second season


Rebecca Romijn returns as host, along with judge RuPaul Charles. GSN is betting on more Skin Wars.

On the heels of a strong summer ratings performance, the cable network has renewed the body-painting competition series for a 10-episode second season.

Rebecca Romijn returns as host, along with judges RuPaul Charles, Craig Tracy and Robin Slonina.

Skin Wars, which wrapped its freshman run Sept. 24, delivered the highest-rated finale for GSN to date. And over the course of the season, the series boosted the network’s performance among female demos by double digits and nearly doubled viewership in its Wednesday time period. It also had a weekly digital after-show, Skin Wars: The Naked Truth, hosted by YouTube star and makeup expert Kandee Johnson.

“We are thrilled that young audiences tuned in to witness the astonishing work of these contestants,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, executive vp programming at GSN. “Skin Wars represents GSN’s commitment to celebrate artistry through skill-based competition and we cannot wait for viewers to see what we have in store for them with season two.”
